Announcements and More

Catching Up and Getting Ready for 2015 

Test and Tune will be April 11th and 12th at the usual 1 PM to 5 PM times. We will continue to use the American Racer 970's and they should be in stock at the track by Tuesday. I would call the track at 989.235.5200 to make sure someone will be there to help you. Ron says he expects that the IMCA Mod tires will be in stock on or about March 20th. He will let me know if and when that is definite.

Opening night will be April 18th at 7:30 PM. Memorial Day Weekend racing will be May 23rd and 24th. The Fourth of July falls on a Saturday and in order to keep from hurting the regular Friday night tracks that surround us, CMS will only run the night of the Fourth. The Government doesn't plan on 'celebrating' on July 6th. The Labor Day Weekend will be September 5th and 6th and finally, the Great Lakes Nationals will be run on Saturday and Sunday, September 19th and 20th.


The 2015 rules packages are here: LATE MODEL, IMCA, PRO STOCK, STREET STOCK, and the GENERAL CMS RULES. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

You can reach me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as you have been able to reach me since this site started back in 1993. I have or can get you the honest answer far more often than you can get it on FaceBook. You may find this hard to believe but not everything you read on FB is true.

Right about here, I need to apologize for my inattentiveness during the majority of the 2014 season. My wife began to have neurological (brain) issues early in February of 2014 and by the time things got sorted out, things had spiraled out of control and my attention was not on racing. Things haven't improved with her but they have at least stabilized. I will try to do better this season. Without my crew at the track picking up and carrying my load, things would have really been bad. I appreciate the work they did under some bad circumstances.

 


For those that intend to have minors entering the pits, here is the minor release form to have pre-filled out. PLEASE NOTE! "Legal" people say you need to do one of two things. Fill it out and have it notarized or fill it out but don't sign it until you are at the track so track officials can countersign it. Other forms will be posted here shortly.

Bry Sloan took the early lead in the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Model feature and pulled out to a small but comfortable lead. While Sloan was pulling away, Ryan VanderVeen began to work his way to second from deeper in the field while Jay Van Dyke, Scott Baker, and Scott Haney battle for position behind them. A caution bunched the field with Sloan in front but with VanderVeen glued to his bumper. Matt Pickard moved into third as VanderVeen looked to the inside and then took the lead. Scott Baker moved into second and tried to reel in the high flying VanderVeen, pulling within four lengths with five to go.

One last caution brought Baker right to the leaders bumper with four to go. Sloan, Josh Borton and Van Dyke finished up the top five. The leader slowly pulled away and VanderVeen went on to win over Baker, Pickard, Sloan, Borton, Ries, Zack Olger, Ryan Kent, Amanda Wing, and Scott Nieman.

Carl Ries scored the B Main win while Sloan, Haney, and Pickard all collected preliminary wins.

Scott Haney lead the Kentucky Friend Chicken Late Model feature with Dave Hartman tight behind. Hartman found his way under Haney and pulled out to a comfortable lead over Haney and Kevin Reeve.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken sponsored Late Model feature got off to a fast pace with Denny Anderson leading over Dave Hartman, Amanda Wing, and Jay Van Dyke. Hartman pulled along side Anderson and they ran just inches apart lap after lap, one pulling a nose out front and then the other. Scott Baker worked his way forward and pulled into third, just off the tail of the leaders. With three to go, Baker slid under Anderson and rode that momentum to pass Hartman and went on to win the non stop green to checker race over Zach Olger, Hartman, Anderson, Wing, Van Dyke, Josh Borton, Kevin Reeve, Matt Pickard, and Tom Dusen.  

Kevin Reeve took the B Main with heats falling to Hartman,Olger, and Anderson.
